Do I need to download a new app for mobile banking?
Yes, you will need to delete the old SFFedCU app and download the new app from one of the app stores.
Do I have to set up a new username and password on the new platform?
If you are a new user, follow the easy enrollment process on our home page. If you are an existing user, you can use the same username, but we require a new password for all accounts due to the increased security of the new system.
What if I’ve never enrolled in online banking?
You can easily enroll from our home page. Simply click the “I Am a New User” link.

For your safety and security, you will receive a one-time password (OTP) when you enroll and when you log in for the first time.

Why am I no longer able to access the Big Picture?
Prior to changing to the new system, the Credit Union completed an analysis and identified that a very small population utilize this service and a decision was made to discontinue it. There are many services available for you and the Credit Union will continue to evaluate other products that we may want to introduce at a later time.
In the previous system, I was able to request a check to myself. How come this option is no longer available?
The new vendor does not have this option available. We will be happy to assist you with this request over the phone at 415-775-5377 or you may visit one of our local branches.
How come I am no longer able to put a description in my transfers to another member with the Credit Union?
This feature will be available again when we complete our core system conversion this August. Our current core system and the new Online and Mobile Banking system are not compatible in this area.
How come I am not able to see my full account number to use for ACH, Wires and/or Direct Deposit?
Our current core system and the new Online and Mobile Banking system are not compatible in this area. Once we go to the new core system this August, your full account number will be displayed within Online and Mobile Banking. Until then, if you need your full account number, please call us at 415-775-5477 or visit a local branch.
